flight crew to air/ground Datalink services. The ICG
products are compliant with ARINC 741 protocol for
satellite-based ACARS messaging. The ICS-120A/ICS-220A is
also compatible with most CMU/DMU models, connecting via
the ARINC 429 data bus, thereby eliminating the need for
any additional interface devices.
